I´m cconsidering postponing my Beloved read into my vacation time in November. I feel like this is a book you have to give some time and attention to. And I don´t feel like that in the moment. Well, I will see how October goes.

Wouldn't it be funny if you happened to pick a suspense book with a diverse author. :D

That could well happen. But I really wanted to take off the pressure of having to find a book I can read because of the author's background rather than just finding a book I really want to read...and really not worry being interested in the book for the sake of the author's background. I always kind of feel like I have issues with the Diverse Voices square. I tend to enjoy going into books blind more than knowing anything about them or who wrote them. That is usually something I enjoy finding out about later.

It's not always easy to tell if an author would fit. American authors especially. Names don't always give it away and if it's something other than race, like disability or sexual orientation, you would have to read information about the author to know. That's ok when you've just read a good book, but looking for one means reading about every author whose book attracts you or finding a list!

Exactly. And I'm not that keen on lists to begin with.
